Key Information

NASS 2024 – ePosters, RapidFire Presentations and Learning Toolbox

NASS is again using Learning Toolbox for the ePosters (including RapidFire ePoster Presentations) at the conference. You will add your presentation to your ePoster stack in Learning Toolbox so you will no longer need to upload your presentation to the NASS system.

Learning Toolbox allows you to create a Stack of material that can be used to present and share your work online and onsite.

Your Learning Toolbox ePoster stack should contain your presentation but can also include additional materials such as videos, weblinks, papers and much more.

How will delegates engage with the ePosters onsite?

Onsite delegates will be able to browse, search, view and interact with your ePoster stacks on their own devices.

Learning Toolbox will make a summary poster for each ePoster (you choose the summary text and key image). By scanning the QR code on the summary poster delegates will be able to view and interact with the contents of your ePoster stack on their own phone.

NASS will print and display these summary posters onsite, providing onsite delegates with an easy way to access and explore your work.

All the ePosters will also be published to the NASS Showcase online where delegates can explore, view and interact with them online throughout the conference and afterwards.

NASS ePoster Showcase

From the showcase or from the summary poster, delegates can open your ePoster stack and explore all the content you have added. They can also post questions or comments to your stack, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your stack and can continue after the event. You can choose to get email notifications of new chat messages on specific stacks. Delegates can also favourite your ePoster stack so that they can return to it more easily.

RapidFire ePoster Presentations

Some NASS ePosters will also be presented as RapidFire presentations. NASS will have told you if your ePoster was accepted for a RapidFire presentation.

In the presentation room, you will present from a networked computer which will show the ePoster showcase You will be able to open your ePoster stack and show your presentation. When you are making your ePoster, you will already be able to check how your ePoster stack will appear and work onscreen by clicking on its preview button.

What support will be available?

You will have plenty of support to use Learning Toolbox. There will be a webinar for authors on 10th May and an email helpdesk (support@stack.services) will be available to answer your ePoster questions in the run-up to the conference. If you are wondering how to get started then we recommend that you watch the 3 minute introduction to the Learning Toolbox editor. This shows the key steps involved in making your ePoster stack.

Presentation used in the webinar

Categories: NASS, Webinar

The only NASS requirement for ePoster authors is that you include a PowerPoint presentation in your ePoster stack.

Required Content

  • Authors must create and upload a PowerPoint presentation into their ePoster stack in Learning Toolbox
  • NASS will no longer create your title and disclosure slides. Disclosures will be readily available elsewhere. Please feel free to include your own title slide, which does not count towards your minimum slide limit.
  • Vendor name, product names or logos should NOT appear anywhere in your Stack

Encouraged Content

If you want more eyes on your ePoster, you need to make it stand out! Luckily, your Learning Toolbox Stack is highly customizable and interactive. Take advantage of this by linking/uploading videos, weblinks, additional documents, link between your other ePosters, and much more! The guides on the Support Page (demo video, written guide, webinar recording) explain how to do this.

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

Explore some inspiring ePosters from a range of conferences and events

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

If your country does not allow access to the Vimeo video streaming service then you can access this video here instead.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.
